I was most recently diagnosed with a seizure disorder and was referred to University of Pittsburgh for a case study along with the Mayo Clinic. Here is his letter Attention Mayo Clinic/University of Pittsburg concussion Center ; As noted in Mr. Frei’s history, he underwent severe trauma while active duty military. He has since been retired from the military with posttraumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury which is not fully been compensated yet. Traumatic brain injury is definitely a component. I have been his primary care physician for approximately the last year as he has started with the VA in Wilmington, Delaware. After his military career. He was a helicopter pilot in the military, then a aircraft mechanic at Philadelphia international Airport. However, his memory was so impaired and headaches as well as circadian rhythm disturbance due to his union schedule. He lost his job at Philadelphia and was until recently working on helicopters down in Maryland. Once they found out memory issues. They terminated his employment. Most importantly patient has the chronic symptoms of PTSD associated with anxiety as well as some slight physical residual symptoms from the motor vehicle. He suffered while active duty. On several occasions approximately 2 times per year. He has had sudden episodes of loss of consciousness where he is found on the ground and after just a minute or so is conscious. He has never swallowed his tongue. He has never been foaming at his mouth. He has never had loss of urine. MRI shows consistency with TBI. There is no evidence of significant seizure workup as well as etiology and combination to create one full situation of posttraumatic stress disorder associated with seizure disorder associated with traumatic brain injury. At this point, I believe Jamie Frey would be most benefited by a a full team approach medical evaluation by the Mayo Clinic for University of Pittsburg concussion Center as the current system of addressing one issue at a time at different facilities is not coming up with an answer and this is a 31-year-old white male in very good physical condition with physical injuries and former military service. If accepted to the program. I suspect we will have a good chance of having her in the Veterans Administration cover costs, but cannot guarantee. Until that is actually submitted If the hospital turns it down he said it a good chance it will be approved couldn't I use this as a way to get SMC-R2? This makes my life a living hell with the timing my wife's pregnant, has lymphoma during pregnancy doctor thinks. Son has a minor birth defect my daughter has a heart defect. Worrying about my own health issues is trivial in my eyes. Dealing with 2 black outs a year and headaches with short term memory problems seem minor to my pregnant wife. Life's full of curveballs
